About Cityteam Oakland
Cityteam Oakland is located in the heart of downtown. The doors of the mission are open to the city's poor, hopeless and homeless. Together, the staff and volunteers in Oakland are working towards an empowered, changed and new Oakland.
In Oakland, Cityteam is carrying on the work that the Oakland Peniel Mission began in 1897, providing hot meals, safe shelter, showers, and clean clothing to this city's homeless population. Cityteam in Oakland also has a wonderful, caring medical staff that provides medical attention for those in need. A recovery program is in place for men that are on a road of destruction from drugs and alcohol. Our community outreach comes alongside low income families in Oakland struggling to make ends meet. Our Learning Center is bridging the gap in education, equipping those we serve to succeed in life.

What's Happening at Cityteam Oakland
Turkey Time!It's that time of year again! Host a turkey drive at school or work and donate the turkeys to Cityteam. We will either serve them at our big Thanksgiving feast for the homeless, low-income families and seniors or we will place it with a Thanksgiving food box that we deliver to those in need.

Help Fill the PantryWe want to make sure each Thanksgiving food box we prepare has stuffing, cranberries, box of mash potatoes, mac & cheese, canned corn, gravy mix and so much more. With your help a family could have several meals from this special holiday box. Click on the link below to learn more and download the shopping list and flyer to help you get started. Get Started >
Join the Yearly Christmas Toy DriveEach year we bless 700 families with children that really don’t have much to look forward to when it comes to Christmas. A present to open on Christmas morning can bring so much joy and help them not to feel forgotten. You can drop off your gift at Cityteam. Even better, maybe at your office Christmas party – you could ask everyone to bring a toy for a boy or girl. Just imagine how many children you could bless this Christmas in our community.

She grew up in a middle class family. She played in their big backyard almost every day with her friends. This happy little girl was never short of food, clothing or love. Then, as a teen, Elaine's life took a turn she never expected. She met a boy, became pregnant and had her first child — a son. The boyfriend left her to struggle alone as a single mother. Elaine worked hard to provide a home, food and loving care for her baby. A few years later, she met and married a man who was much like her father — energetic, caring and hardworking. Together they had a second child — another son.
